Rangers are still looking for their first point and goal in a group that also includes Napoli and Ajax, but turning that around on Tuesday night will be a tough task.

The Ibrox club clinically secured a Premier League top spot on Saturday against 10-man Hearts.

But Snodgrass, who signed for Hearts last month, has warned Giovanni van Bronckhorst's men that Liverpool could prove more difficult as they head south for their latest Champions League test.

“Anfield is probably one of the toughest places I’ve ever been. The atmosphere they create there, especially on a big European night, is really special. It’s impressive enough even just watching the games – but something else when you play them there.

“I’ve played Liverpool at Anfield a few times and it’s a very difficult place to go, even when you do well. I actually did my ankle there celebrating with West Ham, so that wasn’t great! I was playing against Andy Robertson , as well, so that’s always good.”

Antonio Colak's early opener gave Rangers a victory in Edinburgh on Saturday. Hearts are at their best when it comes to the flyer, but Rangers denied that and silenced the home crowd. Snodgrass says the Gers can hope to do the same against Jurgen Klopp's side on Tuesday evening.

“Absolutely, they’ll want to get the crowd quiet, give a good account of themselves – and show that they’re capable of playing at the very highest level of the Champions League. They had a great run in Europe last year, they’ve done really well.

“So there’s no doubt Rangers will head to Anfield believing they can get something from the game. It will be a good watch.

“There is no chance of Liverpool taking Rangers lightly. No chance. Rangers are a big name, everyone knows what they did in reaching the Europa League Final last year. And just look at the size of the club.

“With the fans travelling down there, they will be expecting Rangers to go out there to compete – and believing that they can win.”
